2022 expected to be a good year for Hawaii tourism

 Friday, September 9, 2022 


2022 is expected to be a good year for Hawaii tourism. Till now this year, approximately 5.5 million people visited the islands, spending $11.2 billion.

Compared to the first seven months of 2019, there were 13% less visitors. Spending increased almost 6%. However, what can be expected in the months to come?

Jennifer Chun, the director of tourism research at the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism said that they are witnessing lesser seats on the whole in September compared to 2019. There are still more domestic seats compared to 2019, but less than 2021. Some increases in international seats, however, can be witnessed. Considering October, it’s a similar outline.

Chun credited the smaller amount of air seats to varying timetables for airlines. In 2021, airlines moved their routes to provide for accommodating the request of domestic travelers.

The time between the top summer and winter travel periods, and vice versa, is known as a ‘shoulder season.’ Factually, there is less demand throughout the spring and fall seasons.

Brent Overbeek, the chief revenue officer for Hawaiian Airlines said that characteristically for an airline like Hawaiian, for the duration of the summer, they’ll be around 90% occupied. In the latter part of August, September and during the end of fall, that will normally drop into the mid-80s.

Visitor entrances will make 99% retrieval between September and November, compared to the equivalent period in 2019.
